Antenatal Care
  • The number of pregnant women that go through antental care around the town Gondar varies from one health center to another.
  • It depends on the number of urban and rural kebeles that get service at the center.
  • The predominantly urban health centers such as Gondar or Poly health centers have higher number of ANC visits than Woleka, Gabriel, Tseda, and Belagig.
prevention of mother to child hiv transmission pmtct
Prevention of mother to child HIV Transmission (PMTCT)
  • The Federal Ministry of Health of Ethiopia (FMOE) has new policy since 2011 to have an HIV free generation.
  • The number of PMTCT services as part of ANC services and as stand alone has grown exponentially in the last year and half.
centers that provide pmtct service
Centers that provide PMTCT service
  • Maraki Health Center
  • Tseda Health Center
  • Azezo Health Center
  • Woleka Health Center
    • The city of Gondar health office believes it is willing to start PMTCT services at all health centers. It does not put into consideration whether they are ready or not. Woleka has only one mid-wife but the minimum requirements to start PMTCT service are two, it is manageable now due to small number of patients.
maraki pilot project
Maraki Pilot Project
  • Started with participating six volunteer priests and six women at the beginning of the project.
  • The even number of volunteers are designed to pair the priests and the women equally during the community outreach
  • The volunteers received a five day training around ANC follow up, HIV/AIDS and PMTCT at Bahir Dar through Intra-health.
  • Chain of command
    • Intra-health DICAC Volunteers’ coordinator Volunteers.
    • Volunteers’ coordinator gets paid 300 birr per month
    • Volunteers are paid 100 birr per month
volunteers community outreach
Volunteers’ community outreach
  • The areas they meet their community members are mainly their home, church, community gathering and Tsewa (Religious gathering on various saints day).
  • They teach about the importance of delivery at health center; which would save the women and the baby from birth related complications at home.
  • Encourage HIV counseling and testing. They usually talk to the women first as they are mostly stay home moms.
  • The volunteers usually have better luck of convincing the husband’s of the pregnant women for HIV counseling and testing.
  • They fill out a referral card and they send the men and women with the card.
problems they encountered
Problems they encountered
  • The community members got the misconception that the volunteers got paid large some of money for every referral card from an NGO.
  • The nurses in the area stated the volunteers are getting their jobs without having the right education.
  • As a result, their service was interrupted by a nurse at the Maraki Health center for a month or two.
  • Some volunteers stopped working due to low pay and for not getting paid.
  • Not being able to have answers to questions they were asked by the community members during their outreach.
positives of the project
Positives of the project
  • Their teaching focused on improving Antenatal care, knowing your HIV status, and saving your pregnant child from HIV/AIDS (PMTCT).
  • The women were grouped with priests during community outreach.
  • The volunteers association of the outreach as God’s calling to save their community from HIV/AIDS.
  • Counseling of men and women in their own environment and by the people they respect in their community.
  • The ease of building trust by community members with the volunteers.
